Awful!!! Southwest Pilot Suspended After Homophobic Tirade!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooGay Gay Gay

As well he should! Wait till you hear this guy! Disgusting!

A Southwest airlines pilot was suspended without pay last March after he was overhead making terribly homophobic remarks over the PA system. The pilot left his microphone on as he begin to criticize his attendant staff in terrible, antigay ant.

Someone on the plane had the foresight to record the tirade and submit it to his superiors. They have promptly suspended the pilot for his deplorable behavior and released a statement, saying:

“The Pilot in question has been addressed by Leadership and was suspended without pay. Prior to being reinstated, he underwent additional diversity education to reinforce the Company’s expectations for all Employees to demonstrate respect for others.”

Good! Hopefully, he learned a little something.

Check out the video (above) to hear some of the awful things he said!

    Its not just the gays he insults, but of course, that is all you care about.



  2. 2

    WAIT FOR IT… All the homophobes here will post that suspending him was wrong, it's free speech, Jesus agrees with him, yadda yadda yadda. Pathetic!



  3. 3

    We see that all the time on the Fundagram! What's new! LOL!



  4. 4

    It wasn't even just homophobic it was rude in general, why would you talk like that about people you don't even know?



  5. 5

    people in USA should know the consequence of discrimination against any group of people.
    I thought the media already broadcast it well.

    go on hating, just don't cry about the punishment.



  6. 6

    Some people's insensitivity to this issue astounds me….it is like they live in an ignorant bubble….This idiot needs to be suspended…words are not just words…they reflect a hateful mind-set that can of course lead to other things….discrimination and violence….EVERY idiot that makes a homophobic remark should be called-out. The hate has gone on long enough….People are finally standing up and saying enough! AND until gays are treated equally and have same rights, it will not stop….Period…Gays are fighting the good fight, just like other minorities did before the gays!!! EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!!



  7. 7

    What is up? No one can give their opinions anymore about gay people or they will get fired and shunned. This is rediculous!!



  8. 8

    I wonder how his wife feels about his disappointment in good looking flight attendants, instead of gays, grannies and grande's. What difference does it make whom he flies with? What a douche! I wonder if he always flies with both feet in his mouth!



  9. 9

    If you want to get all over the newa now a days, just say something about a gay person.

    Re: JasonDiggy – That pilot said a lot more that had nothing to do with gay people, and one doesn't have to be a "homophobe" to believe in the free speech the Constitution of this country guarantees each and every one of us, including idiots like you who use moronic labels for those who don't agree with what YOU say and believe. The only pathetic people around here are the ones who act like haters toward those who have different opinions (namely you and Perez). If the pilot doesn't like gay people, and he wants to express himself, that's his right, and nobody cares if you like it or approve of it. You'd be the first one crying in your ruffles about your right of free speech if someone suspended you for expressing support of homosexuality; stop being a twit who has only a double standard to support your position. If you're not smart enough to do better (and you're obviously not or you would've done better right out of the gate, do yourself a favor and employ discretionary silence. You gain nothing by revealing yourself to be an ignorant heterophobe.



  11. 11

    Okay, Mario….once again you got your facts a bit wrong (suprise, suprise). The rant WASN'T over the PA, it was on an open mic that went to Air Traffice Control and to other planes in the Houston area. Having said that. The guy is def an a-hole.



  12. 12

    Ha, that was funny as hell. I'd be pissed too if they didn't put any stray tail on the plane for a straight guy, just homos, fat chicks, and old bitches. That was priceless, someone needs to turn that into a song, like the bed intruder. HA!



  13. 13

    Please Perez, go get punched in the face



  14. 14

    OMG this was soo funny. It's sad that people can't speak their mind without getting in trouble. Whatever happened to Free Speech? I feel bad that he has to work with such people. It's just wrong. They should have age limits, weight requirements and you have to be Non-flaming.



  15. 15

    EXPLAIN WHO EXACTLY RECORDED TOWER CONVERSATIONS?
    AND THE PILOT HAS THE RIGHT TO HIS OPINIONS.
    I'D BE MORE CONCERNED WITH SOMEONE RECORDING AND MAKING PUBLIC AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL AUDIO……



  16. 16

    The most gays can ever hope for is forced toleration and silence when in public. No amount of legislation or 're-education' via the mass media and schools will ever result in acceptance. So, let's stop pretending that people don't talk like this when they aren't afraid of being recorded - this is real life. Gays, blacks, women, say some of the most sexist, racist, anti-religious shit you can possibly imagine - stop acting like non-PC attitudes are solely held by men (white).



  17. 17

    I do not think that anything the pilot said made him homophobic. The pilot wanted to get laid by a chick not a dude. He was frustrated that his industry has trended in the direction to make straight people the minority. I work in an even more male dominated field than this guy. I have heard a lot of crap over the 22 years I have been working on ships. If I was on the bridge with the Captain and we had all gays on the ship, I would expect to have the same conversation even with me being a female. I did not get to the position I am in by being easily offended. I am married and have the respect of my crew and my officers. I expect that any of my fellow officers could vent to me as a colleague and I would not repeat what was said nor would I feel that I needed to get them into diversity training. What is shared between colleagues at this level stays between us and that does not mean that our professionalism would cause us to discriminate. Unfortunately, this guy had an open mic. Too bad for him. But his peers did not fire him becuase they know that colleagues need to be able to communicate freely and as long as you do your job and operate safely, that is all we care about.



  18. 18

    perez manages to always set the gay campaign back with all of his posts and labeling people as homophobes.. I feel bad for the gay community because they have to be represented by someone like this.



  19. 19

    What exactly is an "antigay ant"? (fifth line of your text)



  20. 20

    Mario, you've NEVER said ANYTHING in a PRIVATE conversation with a co-worker or friend (which the pilot thought that he was having), that if it was recorded and broadcast for everyone to hear, wouldn't prove to be embarrasing or hateful?



  21. 21

    Re: sanfran1 – What a fucking little puppet, lmfao. Actually, I bet Hilton has created another fake account just to pretend he's got some support, he's done it before. This dirtbag gets lower every day.



  22. 22

    And Hilton, you will always be labelled a homophobe for using the word f**got.



  23. 23

    Actually, he insulted gays, the elderly, and overweight people. Also? He's already back in the air. He was briefly suspended without pay and that was it.



  24. 24

    seriously im a "fucking homosexual" and this is NOT i repeat NOT a homophobic rant. please someone convince me otherwise.



  25. 25

    Re: Gushiness – It's NOT "an opinion," it's HATE. "An opinion" is whether you like McDonalds French fries or the new Hangover movie. Saying something about an ENTIRE group of people is HATE.



  26. 26

    I feel horrible for the flight attendents who had to hear this being said about them.
    Maybe I just have a different thought about it then everyone else, but I know if I were a gay, male flight attendent who had been with this person on said flight and then heard a recording of them bashing me like that to someone else, I'd be mortified and upset that everyone was broadcasting it to the world, even if the world didn't know I was the one he was talking about.



  27. 27

    There is no denying that this man is a grade A tool, but what I want to know is why your only calling this a homophobic rant? Yes there was some of that in his rant. But there was also a lot of sexist, & just down right pig headed things that he said too. He is clearly objectifying all female flight attendance. They are sex objects in his eyes, & he is clearly saying he thinks that is what they are there for, & he is pissed that there are not enough perfect sexy women fight attendance for him to try to score with. I'm all for gar marriage & equality, but how about portraying things properly.



  28. 28

    wow what the hell is this guys problem



  29. 29

    An easy solution to this problem is to hire some boats and planes and take all the LGBT people to China, they have those cities already built that no one lives in. Easy move in, no relocation expenses, a home all your own with your type…a perfect equal world that you have always wanted.
    Then all you have to put up with is the Chinese government and perhaps another great wall



  30. 30

    The pilot put his passengers at risk, according to the news, because his 27 second rant shut off communications to the airplane. If the tower needed to reach the pilot in an emergency, they wouldn't be able to transmit. As for the contents of the rant, the guy sounds like a dick but is entitled to his stupid ass opinions. The story isn't over yet. The flight attendants union for South West is proclaiming that they will be taking legal action against him.



  31. 31

    but what his saying its true…all flight attendants are gay and old grannies……and perez this is old the men is working again he got suspeneded back in march or april….



  32. 32

    "Gay, grannies, and grandes" ah hell no, he's making fun of overweight people now? Off with his head! lol



  33. 33

    Re: JasonDiggy – Freedom of speech does not have anything to do with being homophobic.

    that seems to be the over used buzz word for you gays…….just because Ifind it disgusting that two guys fuck each other in the ass…does not make me homophobic.

    you are heterophobic then.



  34. 34

    well you might be able to silence then in the media, but this is pretty much what every guy thinks about gays

    35

    gays and granny's? poor, poor pilot!



  36. 36

    That was F'in HIGH-larious!!! Anyone who thinks it was that bad has no sense of humor.. Or at least a really lame sense of humor or is WAYYY to sensitive… Can you just imagine his face after realizing he had just broadcast that to everyone.. That must have been PRICELESS!!! True, the statements he was spouting were kinda ridiculous.. But, it was still funny to hear him talk about random people being "do-able". I mean who wants to be an effin' pilot if the flight attendants are not at least hot… Geez… ;) )



  37. 37

    Re: midwestliving – So true. Wouldn't it be fascinating to have all of Perez' conversations, even those he thought were completely private, recorded and made available to the public? I have been a **g hag for years. I know how you guys slam each other and women with snarky…and incredibly witty comments. But I don't think the public would accept it or find it humorous in the least.



  38. 38

    Re: La Garse – Of course you are confusing freedom of speech with freedom from consequence. Say what ever you like about whomever you want, there will usually be repercussions. If what he said goes against company policy, they have every right to punish him as they see fit.

    SAYS THE PILOT ON THE MOST COLORFUL PLANE NONE TO MAN! BITCH, HAVE A SEAT!



  40. 40

    Why don't you talk about the other people he insults? like the elderly. Of course, as usual, you only talk about the gays. You are so one-sided and predictable.
    If you are going to try and use your gossip website for good, bring as many issues forth as you can! Not just pick and choose a couple! Not all of your readers are gay or being bullied…. there are plenty more issues out there that relate to other readers. You could try looking at others instead of posting the same thing every day.

    EWW HE WAS MAD BECAUSE HE COULDN'T SEXUAL HARASS ANYONE CAUSE THEY WERENT UP TO HIS STANDARDS?! I MEAN COME ON, WHY DO YOU NEED 'HOT CHICKS' TO WORK AROUND YOU, HE WAS JUST RUDE, SEXIST, AND GROSS ALL AROUND. WHEN THE SHIT GOES DOWN, HE WON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT WHO ANYONE LOOKS, WHAT A ASS!



  42. 42

    There's a difference between calling someone a granny and calling someone a disgusting derogatory term like f*ggot. I GUARANTEE if he went on a tirade calling his flight attendants N*GGERS you would all think he was scum. By defending him by arguing free speech you are just proving that you are homophobes yourself! SHAME ON YOU!



  43. 43

    Re: Truth_Is_A-Virus – sad if you really think that. you hang out with the wrong people



  44. 44

    grannies grandes and kids? Help me out with these terms lol. Who would want to have sex with a kid? Ew. I'm assuming any woman over 29 is a grannie? SO what's a grande? A guy at the club?



  45. 45

    Of course everyone freaks out when anyone uses freedom of speech to express how they feel about gay people! Everyone has their own opinions about that lifestyle and people can choose to agree and disagree with it!!!



  46. 46

    What a *******!



  47. 47

    Sounds like a couple normal dudes talking what the problem?



  48. 48

    You're right, cause that wasn't primarily sexist or anything… The term f*g is horrible but that's as far into homophobia as this went. He used a bad word. The overal scumbag theme was the complete disrespect of women. Talking about a woman as bangable is just as offensive as calling a man f*ggot. This was not a homophobic rant but a sexist one. The suspension is acalid but calling it homophobic takes away fromt he real problem and that is this pilot's fraternity bro attitude toward the objectivity of women which of course is ignored as the man said f*g and now it is all bout the gay fight rather than the fight for equality for women.



  49. 49

    whether you believe in homosexuality or not, NO ONE deserves to be talked about by someone w/ so little self esteem. he also said very derogatory things about people from houston and being from houston, its unacceptable. he should be FIRED and MAKE A PUBLIC APOLOGY if he's really that sorry. unacceptable bahaviour!!



  50. 50

    the majority of his comments were aimed at women..not gays! Its quite insensitive to not report that part of his rant!! This actually hurts my feelings that thats all you care to report on!! shame on you!!



  51. 51

    Good that Southwest is not part of the lunatic right wing conservative agenda that hates America.



  52. 52

    god it's getting to be everyday straight people have to something about gay people. it's like heteros are obsessed with homos. how about live and let live. i'm not that fond of straight men and i surely do not want to be around religious freaks but it's not like i want to take away their rights or i'm constantly spouting hateful things about them. get over yourselves stupid straights. i mean if you think of it since the majority of the world and america is run mostly by straight religious men it's no wonder everything is in the shitter.



  53. 53

    Re: MsJules – Homophobia is a term used to refer to a range of negative attitudes and feelings towards lesbian and gay and in some cases bisexual, transgender people and behaviour although these are usually covered under biphobia and transphobia. Intersex and asexual people are also sometimes included. Definitions refer variably to antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, and irrational fear.

    now do you need the definition of the word BITCH? never mind, i'm sure you are more than familiar with that term.



  54. 54

    Re: Gushiness – your on the job….period….u dont have the right to say whatever u want….



  55. 55

    Where the hell is the Gay Liberation Army? Let's get militant and kick a l'il tushy!!! What do YOU think? Doi!!!



  56. 56

    Those who comment here are perfect examples of the fact that no matter how bad a person is there will be a legion of those who defend them. This guy was much more a-holey about women than he was about gays. But that's OK with many of those who comment here. I guess that's cause you're just as ugly and pathetic and fearful as this sad little ding dong. I'd fire him stat.

    A good pilot hearing this would think it highly unprofessional.
